Ezinelle is a form of emergency contraception - a small tablet that contains hormones that delay or stop your ovaries releasing an egg. It is only effective if it's taken BEFORE you've ovulated. If you're past ovulation in your cycle, you could get pregnant, so be sure to take a pregnancy test 3 weeks after.
How to use the Ezinelle pill:
The morning after pill is not used as a regular form of contraception and should only be taken after unprotected sex or if your usual contraceptive method has failed, for example, if a condom breaks or you forget to take your pill. You need to take Ezinelle within 3 days of unprotected sex - the sooner you take it, the more effective it will be. You can start other forms of contraception straight after taking it. If you need to, you can take Ezinelle more than once in a menstrual cycle.
How safe is the Ezinelle pill:
Ezinelle is very safe to take and there are no serious or long term side effects from taking it. It's important to remember that it does not protect you from STIs.;
